that the ntsb will probably take a look at all these electrical issues and try to determine if there is some sort of pattern. >> reporter: that is exactly what is going on. n.t.s.b. has launched an investigation into the airworthyness of the 787, three of their investigators are joined by experts from boeing, japan airlines and faa. the big gamble for the dream liner has yet to pay off, after selling 800 planes, they have cost overruns and quality issues. it could be years before the plane turns a profit. the stock is taking a hit. down more than 3% since the fire yesterday. >> neil: dan just hit on it. this plane is supposed to be the next big thing. more than 800 have been ordered. to industry expert, how serious this is, should we worry? >> we should worry and boeing should worry. but the ntsb is investigating but we have a split problem here. before they start delivery of the plane to customers, you expect some problems but once in the aircraft are in the hands of customers and there are 47 out there now, there have been a number of problems more than what you would usually expect. the f
't look like that but it was hard crash. n.t.s.b. is on the scene to investigate and the company that owns the ships is starting its own review. the this comes after 12 years ago after a captain passed out and crashed into a pier. rick eleven thol is on the scene. what more do we know? >> they were making a run to new jersey to appear in in lower manhattan. they arrived just after 8:40 a.m. it was traveling at 10-12 knots and struck slip "b". a lot of people were thrown in glass, into each other and some even down a staircase. 57 injuries, many head, neck and back injuries. nine of them serious, two critical. some people sitting down were even hurt. >> lack of a better description, i think people lot of people got their backs wrenched and they were immobilized. >> the ntsb team is here and they are working with the u.s. coastguard and a press conference is planned. >> shep: it's my understanding this ship had recently mechanical upgrades? >> it did. in fact the owners of the company say they had new propulsion system that makes the ship more efficient but not necessarily faster but somethi
, is anybody responding to this? >> the n.t.s.b. sent an investigator to japan to work with their officials. remember the ntsb already opened an investigation following the 787 battery fire you mentioned in boston last week. that battery was in the back of the plane. the one that caused the emergency landing in japan was more in front of the dream liner but all of this will be looked at after a comprehensive review of the electrical system. that review was announced last friday. at the time they expressed confidence in the 787 but now, they are apologizing to customers for cancelled flights due to the voluntary grounding of their dream liner. they announced today they did some safety checks and all of their planes are in service. >> clearly, more bad news for boeing. what is the company saying? >> they are very tight-lipped. they released a one line statement they are aware of the issue and working with the airline. they and many aviation experts say, these are teething issue that happens to every new plane. no one has been hurt or killed. last year was the safest year ever in the aviation
from in the ntsb's latest update on the 787 investigation is it looks like the planes will not fly anytime soon. they don't know what caused two batteries to overheat, leading to a fire and emergency landing and the grounding of the fleet of 50 dreamliners in service. they're looking at the battery charger and the electrical system, and so far there's been no smoking gun. >> this is not something we're expecting will be solved overnight. there's a lot of technical work and a lot of complex work to understand. >> i also got word from a source inside boeing that the ntsb is looking at another fire in tucson in 2006 that happened on a plane -- it was during a test when the lithium ion battery exploded and burst into play. boeing says the test was done wrong. the worker who set it up says it was correct, and the batteries were dangerous. he was fired and sued and lost his case. now the feds are reexamining the whole incident. meantime, boeing continues to assemble dreamliners in seattle and south carolina. the problem is what to do with the planes when they're finished. the company did
leventhal is live at the scene at pier 11. >> reporter: we can confirm that n.t.s.b. go team is on that ferry boat, assisting the u.s. coast guard into the investigation what caused this ship. 140 foot ferry boat to slam into pier 11 after 8:40 a.m. injuring 57 people, as you mentioned two of them critical, 9 the serious and 17 reported in guarded conditions. many of the folks were standing up as this boat came in close to shore getting ready to get off when it hit and they were thrown forward. some downstairs, others into windows, breaking glass, many of them were cut, many suffered bruises, their heads and next were injured and backs as well. even one woman sitting down was hurt. >> i was sitting down upstairs towards the back. i was like half asleep and all of a sudden there was this loud bang and my face catapulted into the seat in front of me and my knee must have also hit the seat. >> reporter: you can see where the front of the boat hit, the corner of what we believe of a dock out here and ripped a hole and shredded the right side of that vessel, from the inside the c
the flood of lawsuits that followed. information the ntsb was investigating that crash and this one as well. that's standard procedure. a go team arrived this afternoon. they are preparing to gather what they are calling perishable evidence. >> we are just here to collect information right now. we are not here to conduct analysis. we are not here to speculate. we are not here to determine the probable cause. we're here to find out what happened so that we can prevent it from happening again. >> and the ntsb says it will interview crew members tomorrow and begin collecting, gathering evidence to try and determine the cause of this crash, shep. >> shepard: rick leventhal in lower manhattan where the accident happened this morning and just hours later just across the east river, another new york city disaster unfolded when a 200-foot tall crane collapsed in queens. that crane went down neither iconic pepsi sign that you can see from manhattan. the fire department claims today's collapse trapped several workers. seven are now hurt. three of them reported in serious condition. crane collapses. a
electri leaking el, the ntsb brought the ballotries to their lab to disassemble them. some have been speculating excess voltage could have started the fire but the ntsb told us today, but examination of the flight recorder from the jalb 787 airplane indicate the batteries did not exceed the designed voltage of 32 volts. these are the charred remains of the battery that started the fire in boston two weeks ago and caused smoke damage to a flight. it's interesting. this 787 dream liner program was actually launched back in 2004 with an order from the airline, but their dream liners and everyone else's dreamliners have been grounded by governments around the globe. experts are saying the only way to get these planes air worthy again is to fix the faulty batteries. >> they can't switch out to other kinds of batteries. that would really add too much weight and they wouldn't be able to produce the amount of power necessary to drive this aircraft. >> reporter: now, boeing refused earlier this week to speculate about what the issue is with the batteries, but they made clear that despite the
a flight to make an emergency landing in japan. the head of the ntsb is now speaking out about the batteries and saying the investigation is far from over. dan springer live in seattle with the latest now. this battery, dan, it may have been dangerous even before the plane was certified to fly? >> reporter: yeah, jon. this issue's been out there a long time. now, boeing uses these 60-pound lithium ion batteries because they put a lot more power out than the standard batteries used on planes. but there were serious red flags dating back to 2006. this video has surfaced of a fire at a boeing contractor's lab near tucson, arizona. it was sparked when a lithium ion battery -- the same kind used in the dreamliner -- exploded during the test. a company makes the battery charger for the dreamliner, and we know ntsb investigators were back at this location this week testing the charger. the battery concerns prompted the faa to issue special rules for the installation of the batteries in the 787 of. investigators said yesterday the safety systems put in place by boeing definitely did no
investigation. it's the first time the ntsb has investigated the 787. every new airplane has what they call birthing issues, problems that require some engineering fixes but firings are always serious and could be catastrophic. investors are hammering boeing, the stock is down $4 since the fire yesterday. >> shep: dan dan springer, thanks. >> one insurance provider says it could sue the government because of bailout. it agreed to a $182 billion rescue, one of the largest in the financial crises after revelations that the company gave out hefty bonuses. aig said it paid the bailout in full and started a campaign thank you america complete with high profile television ads. now aig is considering joining a shareholder lawsuit that is already in place against our government over the terms of the rescue. geri will system with us. they are upset over the bailout. >> it's very upset and being led by the former ceo the of the company. he is the biggest share holder. basically the claim is that the country violated the constitution, fifth amendment which requires the government can't take over priva
. the ntsb you remember has its own investigation of a battery fire that happened on the ground in boston last week. that battery was in the back of the plane. used to provide power when the 787 is not flying. friday, the faa announced it was conducting comprehensive review of the dreamliner electrical system. united airlines released a statement today say
of the secure a plane. we are told by the ntsb, they will be doing tests on the battery chargeert and apu controller, the engine near the back of the plane that power its when the engines are off. it was a lithium ion battery that turns on that engine that overheated and caught fire on the 787 at boston's logan airport. investigators said the battery had not been overcharged. but something led to it overheating. the japanese transportation officials are kuking their own investigation, focusing on the company that makes the batteries. a boeing source tells me the two batteries that overheat head serial numbers close together, but it appears unlikely that they were part of a bad batch. the planes were assembled a year apart. the boeing ceo sent employees a letter to employees saying he had complete confidence in the plane and the company would do everything possible to fix the electrical problems quickly and get the plane back in the air. they are confident this won't last long. boeing won't deliver any more 787s until the grounding is lifted and a norwegian air shuttle has been told to exp
are not the problem. they've been used on space satellites without any issues. the ntsb still can't say for sure why two of the batteries overheated and one caught fire on that plane in boston. but they know boeing's safety system failed. experts say it looks like this investigation will last for a while. >> suddenly 787 will be on the ground for an indefinite period. whether that's two months, four months, six months or more, i have no way of knowing. but it's not going to be back in the air any time soon. >> united airlines is the only u.s. carrier to have any dreamliners. they have six. the ceo says he has confidence the problem will be fixed and customers will come back. shep. >> shepard: dan springer in seattle, chunks of concrete go flying as a sewer explosion tears up a downtown street and it tops our news around the world in 80 seconds. china. security cameras captured the moment the road suddenly burst open in a southern province. one angle appears to show three adults and a child standing a few feet away. officials say nobody was hurt. the blast destroyed some 250 feet of roadway. authorit
. >> the ntsb disassembled the faulty power unit or apu at about battery at the materials lab in d.c. and given us three updates what they found. the most relevant part of the most recent release from today is this. they say examination of the flight recorder data from the jalb 787 airplane indicate that the apu battery did not exceed its design the voltage of 32 volts. excess volt and did not cause the batteries to leak electrolyte fluid that started the fire in boston two weeks ago. the dreamliner is boeing's first new plane in two decades and they brag in their website it has unmatched fuel efficiency and composite materials make up more than half of its primary structure but governments worldwide have grounded these enormous aircrafts until the batteries are proven safe and officials say there is no other way to make these planes air worthy without improving the specific batteries. >> they can't switch out to other kinds of batteries. that would really add too much weight and they wouldn't be able to produce the amount of power necessary to drive this aircraft. >> boeing made clear this wee
with bandages on his head. people are still being removed from the pier with injuries. the ntsb also gathering information on this accident because it's a transportation incident involving injuries here in lower manhatten. martha: it looked like everybody was off before, and now as you're saying they are continuing to bring people off, their head bandaged as you point out. i go back to what peter johnson junior was saying about the ferry, people get up, they feel like it's coming into dock, everybody stardz star standing up. new yorkers are always in a hurry to get to work. they are standing at the top of the stairs like this man was ready to go. you can see why this would happen. >> i heard from one passenger, the service is tip *eubg lee good on thtype itypically good on the ferry. people sitting down were fine. people standing up close to doors and glass were the ones who tumbled forward when the boat hit the dock and some of them hit the glass and some of them broke glass. there were a lot of cuts. there was according to passengers a lot of blood on the boat. and the most serious injuries
. new details just into fox news from the ntsb and this investigation into issues with one of the largest commercial planes you will find anywhere. the focus on the battery maker used in boeing's dreamliner jets. this is big story. we've been watching it for some time. now we have a little bit more direction as how safe it is on board. we're back from washington, d.c. he is sconced back in our home in new york. martha: good morning. good to be back. good morning. i'm martha maccallum. that is not the way you want to leave a plane necessarily. so a burning battery is what forced the emergency evacuation in japan of everybody on board and led to the frownedding of the airliner jets around the world. here is what the burned out battery looks like. bill: don't want one of those either. dan springer at boeing's headquarters. what more can you tell us about the investigation there? >> reporter: investigators with the national transportation safety board are expected to be in tucson, arizona for tests on the battery charger that had the fire at boston logan's airport. the ntsb rel
its investigation. that from the ntsb. airlines around the world grounded the 787s after a pair of battery fires. one forced a flight to make an emergency landing in japan. the other caused a battery fire onboard a dreamliner after it landed in boston. the head of the ntsb said they identified some of the battery problems but still do not know the cause. >> we know the lithium ion battery experienced a thermal runaway. we know that there were short circuits and we know that there was a fire. the work that we continue to do will tell us why these things happened. we have a number of next steps. we are early in our investigation. we have a lot of activities to you know take. we're going to be completing those lab exams that we talked about with that incident battery, and documenting all of those. bill: she also told "the seattle times" she would expect the grounding to last months and not weeks. that's the last thing the company wants to hear. safe flying. a lot on the line. martha? martha: some new reaction to what is called the most far-reaching gun proposals in u.s. history but
to help charge and run the aircraft. the these batteries can be troublesome. the ntsb is investigating the issue. in boston, and i think the faa is going to take a hard look at the certification process that went through it. so i mean i think, i think it's a good plane. it is a revolutionary design. i think they're going to come through this just fine. jon: i'm looking to fly on one too. peter goelz, thanks for sharing your expertise. >> thank you. jenna: reaction pouring into the president's gun violence announcement a few minutes ago. florida senator marco rubio out saying the president is abusing his power by using this executive fiat. that is what marco rubio is saying. some more on his reaction and the reaction from washington, d.c. and beyond in just a moment.
they are prone to overheating and tphaoeurs. a former boeing executive is firing back at the faa and the ntsb foregrounding the 787 fleet. he told the seattle times it was quote, heavy handed, draconian and way beyond what needs to be done to protect the public. he left boeing to become the ceo of continental airlines so he is certainly sensitive to what the airlines are going through, they are taking a big hit financially as these planes remain out of service. arthel: dan springer quite complicated. jon: she is accused of killing her exlover in a murderous rage. this woman faces a possible death sentence. when she is not in court she is busy doing something else. what occupies her time in her jail cell that apparently is raking in the dough. a balanced budget amendment was filed today. how do they plan to convince fellow sevens to support the bill? we'll talk to senator lee next. so...how'd it go? well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taugh
